The kids enjoyed bacon and eggs for breakfast, and toast and organic apricot jam.
The sweet place mats they are eating on have the names of my children imprinted on them.
Their mother and uncle. I had them write their names and tape them over the original names.
First they removed the names taped on of my older set of grand kids now 16 and 19 yrs old.
I told him I'd give it to him for Chanukah.
Grandpa sang and played and made up songs with the kids names in them.
The dolls had a sun bath. Then grand daughter played a solo over her ice cream for dessert.
They came in after lunch and made art at the little table: stamping and drawing, writing
in English and Hebrew. They are learning Hebrew at school and their vocabulary is growing after only less than one month of school. Pretty soon they will know more than I do.
DH just melts when A. cuddles up to him this way. And he does a lot.
He's very very fond of his grandpa.
And then of course they played more music together in the later part of the day.
I have to tell you we did not cry when they left.
Frankly we are exhausted.
We loved the time with them
but I won't crash and burn this time.
I will wait patiently until our next time together
but not hearing "grandma do this, grandma give me that" for a while
will be a much needed rest.
I need to rest up for next time. And now Grandpa can finally get to his two boxes of student notebooks
I promise to get back to Cactus drawings soon.
